Pipe-Cleaner Sculpture - FamilyEducation

Pipe-Cleaner Sculpture

How many different figures and shapes can your child make, using nothing more than pipe cleaners?

Pipe-Cleaner Shapes Activity for Kids


  1. Pipe cleaners
  2. Twist ties


Help your child bend pipe cleaners into different shapes. Join some together and make more complex shapes. You can make people, animals, trucks, or anything you'd like. Join them together and hold them in the air, moving them back and forth. This is a fun family activity as you can make the sculpture as large as you'd like, with each person creating a mini-sculpture link at their own artistic ability.
